History

The AC/137(WF) chronological series contains the records of the Science Committee Ad Hoc Working Party on the Western Science Foundation. The Group was made up of representatives of five Alliance countries: France, Germany, Italy, Norway and the United Kingdom. It was tasked with exploring possible ways of responding to France’s proposal of 11 February 1958 (see AC/137-D/2) on setting up a Western scientific research foundation aimed at improving international co-operation on pure science and applied science. The Working Party met on 21-22 May 1958 and concluded that there was no immediate need for such a foundation but recommended that the Science Committee look into issues related to scholarship programmes, the organization of summer courses and the awarding of research contracts. A report was submitted on 23 May 1958 (see AC/137-D/11) and, its mission accomplished, the Ad Hoc Working Party was dissolved.
